lyrics

Threadbare shirt and a lilac breeze
This kinda weather makes you weak in the knees
Could it be your inner enemy's gone?

Radio playing a song you like
You pump the tires up on that old rusty bike
Could it be your inner enemy's gone?

Well it only lasts for a couple of weeks
Floating around on that lilac breeze

And you leave the city, look at the sky
There's a hundred thousand stars up there waiting for you if you like
Could it be your inner enemy's gone?

When your birds are soaring on a lilac breeze
Pick your telephone up dial my number if you please
Could it be your inner enemy's gone?

Well it only lasts for a couple of weeks
Floating around on that lilac breeze

And you leave the city, look at the sky
There's a hundred thousand stars up there waiting for you if you like
Could it be your inner enemy's gone?
